Gill who lives in beautiful Sydney, was born in South Africa in 1951 and has spent some time in the UK as well as Israel. She has a degree in Fine Arts from the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg.
Gill creates images that evolve as one looks at them … sparking associations that develop and deepen. She is currently inspired by the beautiful coloring and patterning found on the bark of Blue Gum trees as well as the sandstone rock faces so plentiful in Sydney. Although Gill’s starting point lies in the shapes, lines and textures of Nature, her work often has a spiritual quality.
“I find elements from different natural sources and combine them creating a new entity. I work intuitively, one thing leading to another. There is the initial stimulus of beauty together with my curiosity …. I plunge into the work and magic sometimes happens!”
